Colleagues: At next week’s National Communication Association convention in San Francisco CA, we are holding a forum to discuss the launch of a new international professional association dedicated to environmental communication (http://indications.wordpress.com/2010/10/10/proposed-international-environmental-communication-association-strategic-planning-document/ ). We’ve established a timeline for implementation by mid-year 2011.
We are looking for volunteers to help with four working groups that will lead the launch effort:
*Financial (incorporation, revenue sources, seed money)
*Organizational (finalizing name, mission statement, organizational structure and by-laws)
*Membership/outreach (disseminating information about the new association to academic and non-academic audiences around the world; finding ways to maximize value of the new association)
*Web site/elections (establishing a web home and identity; setting up and conducting electronic elections in Spring 2011)
If you are interested in helping with any of these working groups, and especially in chairing or co-chairing one of the groups, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. The working groups will begin their efforts in the next few weeks.
Exciting times ahead for environmental communication!
